A page “Tributes” very framed
Except that it’s not enough. The problem with the commemoration is that the account remains active, which can quickly become creepy. For example, if you comment on a photo of a missing loved one, she may get back on the wire of your mutual friends. Some have even received friend requests from deceased relatives. Moments at best unsettling and at worst shocking that Facebook does not want to multiply. At the rate of 200,000 user deaths each year, there is a real problem for Mark Zuckerberg’s social network.
Facebook has decided to go a little further in the management of the accounts of deceased persons. He is deploying a section called “Tributes”. This is a kind of guestbook that will gather all messages posted on the account after the death and, especially, separate from those posted by the person during his lifetime. This new section will also be managed by the users who have inherited the account, with a right to look at everything: people authorized to write messages and the content of posts.
